Real-Time Copic & Color Pencil Coloring + Wplus9 Hibiscus Bouquet

Hey folks!

In today's video I'm going to share some real-time Copic & Prismacolor coloring. I'm going to be using the oh so fabulous Wplus9 Hibiscus Bouquet Stamp, but I've slowed down the coloring process as much as possible. There quite a bit to this coloring process, but it's totally worth it in the end. I really want to encourage you to slow down take it easy. Good things happen when you do!

You can watch the video on how I made my cards HEREYou can also click the thumbnail link below.

I've had the Wplus9 HIBISCUS BOUQUET Stamp Set for awhile, so I was super stoked to get it out and use it. It's a gorgeous stamp set folks, but it definitely has a few things going on. To make it a wee bit more complicated, I decided to do some no line coloring.

I used Neenah Solar WHITE Cardstock and I stamped the image twice with Inkon3 FADEOUT Ink. This is hands down my favorite ink for no line, but you could use any light colored ink if you like as long as it's Copic friendly.

The large bloom is fairly easy, but if you look at the image there are those 2 other flowers that are starting to bud. They would be easier to see if they were stamped in black, however since I wanted no line, I took the backing sheet from my stamp and scanned it on my printer. You could totally just stamp this on another piece of paper, but let's be honest, I'm lazy and didn't want to clean the stamp. What d'ya do?

The colors I chose for the flowers are from an exercise in the Vanilla Arts MARKER PAINTING Foundations Class. They were already sitting out on my desk and I do love me a red hibiscus. I have the colors linked down below if you're interested in those. By the way you can get 10% off orders of $59 or more, and free shipping on orders of $35 or more at BLICK Art Materials.

I have lots to talk about in the VIDEO including some real-time coloring folks, but the one thing I really want you to take away from this is TAKE YOUR TIME! Seriously. There's lots of techniques and lots of different styles of cards you can make that you can totally just breeze through, but don't ever feel like you have to rush them all. You don't.

The quickest way for you to become better is to slow down and take your time. Lemme say that again. Take your time. I know it seems counterintuitive, but it's true. Not only do you learn more about coloring when you do that, but you learn more about yourself as a colorist. Win-win! 

I didn't add too many embellies folks. I I added some dots with a Sakura BLACK Gelly Roll, went over the stamens with a Sakura CLEAR Glaze Pen and a wee bit of Nuvo AQUA Shimmer and called it a day.

I mentioned in the video that I'm taking Vanilla Arts CLASSES. I am taking the MARKER PAINTING FOUNDATIONS Workshop. This is the big daddy of all the classes that Amy Shulke offers. If you're interested in starting with the basics and working your way up folks, it's the way to go. I also just completed the DRAGONFLY Workshop that you see above. I highly recommend these workshops folks.

That's it!
